Re: Quinclorac or Triclorphyl

Just make sure you get the amine salt for this time of year...it's much safer since temps are over 75 or whatever (just rough temps) now.

Re: Help me ID these grasses!

Top is likely Tall Fescue; bottom is likely Kentucky Bluegrass.

Probably. That and frequent rain/cloudiness. Gray Leaf spot is one possibility. If you read up on it, it will scare you.

Triclopyr, my B, it just rolls off the tongue. I plan to use a surfactant on whichever I use. Was leaning towards quinclorac since I have it unless triclopyr is that much better.
The amine version does not cost that much, even in small bottles, unless you have a very large area to treat.

Re: Quinclorac or Triclorphyl

I'm not sure about Triclophyl, which sounds more like an antibiotic maybe (guessing). But Triclopyr, definitely. That said, clover is not really bad, and can co-exist fine with grass until it starts dominating it, at which point you need to do something. I guess that's the situation. Only thing is, ...

Re: Experience with Tenacity during Summer?

Geeen, have you been able to kill zoysia with tenacity? I have never heard that it is effective against zoysia. I had some zoysia introduced into my lawn (don’t know how, either neighbors lawn service or deer I suspect) and was planning on digging it out and putting sod down. I don't have it, but a...

I got to hit a few areas before both sprayers quit working. You do what you can, when you can.

Re: Experience with Tenacity during Summer?

If you have warm season grasses to kill or knock back, either on or off label, such as Nimblewill or Zoysia, you would definitely benefit from Summer Tenacity apps (but generally not until July or even August as the case may be).

Re: Mixing Certainty - Help/check

Count yourself lucky you don't have to spray everywhere. I have Triv mixed in everywhere in some cases, and have to spray Certainty or Velocity over a combined 6-7 K and am hoping most of my good grass makes it through. I can only use Certainty on the areas that don't have TTTF, or where I don't min...

Re: Serenade: how effective on Spring renos for prevention?

Andy, As noted I haven't gotten the Nu-Film 17 yet. Monday might be free of rain and wind and good fir spraying, but with possible rain to follow in the forecast any or all days next week after it. Do you feel a Serenade app without Nu-Film would be a waste if it rains lightly to moderately on half ...

Re: Any thoughts on screamin green

Nope, no burn potential at all at low rates, under 3 lbs/K or so. Rumor has it, the Biosolid content is a half of a bag of OceanGro. Great stuff.

Re: June Temperatures All Over the Board

I'm not going to complain...the temps have averaged out to essentially average here. Rainfall is also about average for May to June. The trickiest thing has been trying to spray stuff (lawn, trees) with either wind or rain almost every day. I only have one Serenade app so far. I haven't gotten the N...

Re: Fungus and Nitrogen Apps

Are you sure you've ruled out Brown Patch? It doesn't have to be just patches...it can be evenly spread out like you say. Fairly large irregular but defined light gray to tan lesions with a brown line around them on the leaf blade is indicative of brown patch. If you see any yellow, it's something e...

Re: Help me identify the grass at new home!

Second shot: Probably a mix with Tall Fescue and some other species. I'm looking at the grass immediately next to the sidewalk. Can you post some clear extreme close-ups to verify?

You sure you didn't use seed with Tall Fescue along the sidewalk?!

Re: Poa Annua?

Almost definitely not. More likely KBG. The reason I'm not 100%, is because the stem was cut and regrew a new seedhead, and I can't tell how thin or thick the part immediately under the seedhead is, because it's inside the leaf sheath still from when it tried to put up another inflorescence after be...

Re: Any thoughts on screamin green

I'm a big fan. I discovered it in 2016 and have been using it since. Used to be able to get it for about $25 per bag, but it's gone up since then to like $38 in 2019. Still use it once a year, though.

What would you like to know?

Re: Here Comes the Burn-Out

Yup. As I mentioned, it's been happening here for a couple of weeks. I also see it on lawns not cut too short, and I think the browning is mostly due to the sun heating up the soil and roots not being healthy enough to cope with it, along with some disease. In my family member's lawn I cut yesterday...
